Over 1.9k deaths today in the US. Deaths usually lag 2-4 weeks behind cases and hospilaztion so this is the Halloween amd election deaths and we haven't hit the big boys that are Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New years. We also have black friday amd holiday shopping sprinkled in there.

and thats even with the US way of counting covid19 related deaths (where they are quick to blame other things instead).
Wouldnt be surprised if the "real" number was like twice that.

They said they are expecting over 400k deaths due to covid19 by early March 2021.
So that probably ment they were predicting the US would be hitting 2,000 or more pr day, when they were looking at trends and trying to predict the future.
